The way of Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم), the way of perfection...

Here Sheikhul Hadeeth (رحمة الله عليه) expresses his astonishment at those who leave the Sunnah. Of course, to those of us who are unconnected, we cannot understand what the problem is. But those who enjoy a qalbi connection with Allah's Beloved (صلى الله عليه وسلم) can only grieve when they see other ways being preferred over the Sunnah.

According to another hadeeth quoted by Hazrat Umar Radiallahu anhu, he once asked Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم), "We hear some words from the Jews, which to us appear very nice. If you permit us we shall write them down."

Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) replied, "Are you in doubt regarding your deen as the Jews and Christians were? Verily I have brought to you a clear shariat. Even if Moosa should be alive today, he would have had no way out than to follow me." (Mishkat).

Many other hadeeth on this topic have been mentioned in hadeeth and we people, while not only discarding to follow the example of Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم), do not even find time to read about the life and character of Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم). No, we want to see what the newspapers say. We want to see what France and America say...

...When it is said, "Listen to what Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said" or "Listen to the translation of what Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said or did", we cannot find the time. But when it comes to reading newspapers and magazines, then let alone attending classes, even if the salaah passes by, no attention is paid to it. We are not speaking about the general public. We refer to those who are supposed to be religious minded. When I even see how the taskbeer oolaa is being recited in the masjid and students of deen are still sitting in shops or restaurants reading newspapers, then I know what heaviness passes over my heart.
